the Beginning of Winter

No Rochu, No Life.
Today is "Li Dong(立冬 )" day. According to the lunar calendar, the winter of 2010 begins from November 7th!



From ancient Chinese customs, today is the beginning of winter, and winter will last several months. Actually things are quite different from north to south. My friend in Heilongjiang province told me that her city is cold for weeks, but in my city students can wearing shirt uniform now--it's warm here. How about Hainan island? I don't think they will have a real "winter"...(lol)

The food of Li Dong is dumpling. Well...I don't know why, maybe because winter is a season for storing energy.

Here is a poem of Li Dong:

立冬 [唐]李白
冻笔新诗懒写,
寒炉美酒时温。
醉看墨花月白,
恍疑雪满前村。

Li Dong [Tang Dynasty(A.D.618~907)] Li Bai
The coldness frozen my writing brush, and I feel too lazy to write new poems.
Sometime I love to warm my wine by using shabby stove.
I drunk, seeing flowers become dark and moon lights so white.
I suspected that was heavy snow, covered my village site.





Have a nice winter! ^_^

Well...sunny today, sunny tomorrow, maybe sunny the day after tomorrow...Now we're wearing shirt uniforms, but several days ago we used to put on our sweater and coat. Weather here is quite changeable. As I said before, Changsha have no autumn, only summer and winter.XD

Новаки ласковый и с пирожным Oh today is great! I've already got my marks of last weekend's examination...and I feel so happy as I reached the top in "General Arts" --it's a subject which combined history, geography and politics. Actually we've had a nightmare difficult geography exam, but thanks to Hetalia...I have great passion with our lovely earth.XD
Another thing is that my name appeared in a famous news magazine. Of course, I'm still too lack-experienced to write an artical for them...but I found their mistakes in Russian language :). Maybe oneday my name will appears in their writers' page, not only in their corrigendum declaration.(lol)

How was your day? ...And how about winter in Russia?

:hlop::vict:
Interesting object, i think))
but I found their mistakes in Russian language
Can I congratulate you one more time?))) It's your own rly cool cachievement *_____* It's a pity, but I find mistakes in russian language in russian magazines, books and another official production every day... ;__;
And what a mistake was it, if u remember?)
Maybe oneday my name will appears in their writers' page
Why not? :D As far as I see you can do practically everything you want, you need just to go and to do)))))
How was your day?
Active T___T Very. At New Year evening-holiday in our school my mother and me will tell to classmates about japanese food. With kimono, fans and another strange things - and today was long dialog with my art-teacher about it.
And how about winter in Russia?
^^' +5 or 7. And very misty. And no one hint for winter, or snow at least... I don't know this man who has told about endless winter here D: Where is the winter when we wait for it... ((

Новаки ласковый и с пирожным Yes...General Arts is kind of interesting, but sometimes it may becomes so horrible. Imagine you're fighting with a testpaper, with questions mixed up three subjects. What's more, "Politics" subject is not only Politics, but also included Economics, Current Political, Culture Things and even Philosophy.@_@ Anyway, I love to deal with those texts, instead of Maths.(lol)

About that mistake...Orz that was a Low-level error. I guess there have nobody know basic Russian in that magazine's Editorial Department --- although that was a best-seller. I'll tell you details next time on the skype. :tear: Since I feel so shame to say in the public like here. I bet you--or any other native Russians--will die laughing when you know it.

I always found Chinese mistakes made by medias too. I do enjoy to catch those mistakes in the text...there is an Chinese idiom to describe people like me--"咬文嚼字(chew the language)". I think people should be more serious with languages--both foreign languages and mothertongue.

my mother and me will tell to classmates about japanese food. With kimono, fans and another strange things
Ohhh sounds nice! *__* I did same thing several years ago when I was study in an amateur Japanese school. Our teacher made Japanese food with us, by using fresh fish and lots kind of vegetables. I love てんぷら, they are yummy :heart:.

+22℃ here. Thanks to our damn dry sunny days, I can wearing skirt now.T_____T Harbin is already snowing, where is my birthday snow...I've never seen it. :weep3:
